The police in Iran lashed a young man 45 times in public on a back of pickup truck while his hands and feet were chained. The torturous and degrading punishment was carried out by the State Security Forces (police) on Sunday in a village with a population of fewer than 700 inhabitants. The prosecutor general of Lamrood County in the southern province of Fars where the village is located pledged to continue carry out more such sentences. Reza Rahimian quoted by a local website: “Such sentences will be carried out in the area to reach a sustainable security.” According to a report, since April there has been six cases of police lashing prisoners in public in the county. The young man had been arrested on drug related charges and sentenced to 4 years in prison, two years in exile and 45 lashes.
